Splendid Sunday Snapshots*

My Sunday in snapshots:

1. Chelsea Chaos
Strolling through Chelsea to the tube this morning was a sea of blue and white thanks to the fact that the local team won the Champions League final. We skidaddled out of there and missed the crazy football crowds but got a glimpse of the build up to the celebratory parade.

2. Camden 
Sarah and Lucas are fellow foodies and we sampled jerk chicken, fresh fried calamari, kangaroo burgers and Armenian nibbles at the Camden international food market. As I tried to identify all the sweet smells I couldn't help but wonder why there isn't something like this in Amsterdam {Or have I been missing it all this time?}

3. Lunch with some of my favourite people

For Alfie's birthday we went to the York & Albany townhouse hotel in Camden. Some of the yumminess included dirty martinis & cheeky G&Ts, salmon ceviche {the colourful plate was delicious!}, chorizo & octopus {a surprising & tasty combo}, a homemade burger, deepfried whitebait {a British thing I've never understood} & pretty-damn-amazing deserts {I was too distracted to photograph my pineapple tarte with rum& pistachio ice cream} It was a great afternoon and I'd highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!



  1. Wonderful set - looks like a great time.
